Wallace offered an apology for a doomed ideal.The former Alabama governor, whose name became shorthand for much of the worst of white Southern opposition to the civil rights movement, held hands with men and women he had once held down with the power of his office.

Montgomery County officials said Tuesday they will no longer honor federal requests to hold illegal immigrants beyond their scheduled release date unless U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement can demonstrate the person is likely to have committed a crime. The decision means three of Maryland's four largest jurisdictions -- Montgomery and Prince George's counties along with Baltimore city -- have changed long-standing policies this year that treated the federal immigration detainers the same as criminal warrants.

Brian E. Frosh, a veteran state senator from Montgomery County who championed gun control and environmental protection, defeated two opponents to win Tuesday's Democratic primary for Maryland attorney general. Frosh, 67, who had trailed in early polls but was better-funded than his rivals, held a commanding lead over Baltimore County Del. Jon. S. Cardin - the nephew of U.S. Sen. Ben Cardin - and state Del. Aisha N. Braveboy of Prince George's County. After a concession call from Cardin, Frosh addressed supporters at the quaint Women's Club of Chevy Chase.

It is a rare pleasure in any election year (and perhaps this one more than most) to have a candidate for state-wide office we can endorse so enthusiastically as we do Brian Frosh in the Democratic primary for attorney general. In his career in the General Assembly, he has distinguished himself as a considerate and effective legislator, and we have no doubt that he would excel as Maryland's top lawyer. Mr. Frosh has represented Montgomery County in the state Senate since 1995 and was in the House of Delegates for two terms before that.
